Multimedia Information Retrieval Using Fuzzy Cluster-Based Model Learning

Sattari, Saeid
Yazıcı, Adnan
Multimedia data, particularly digital videos, which contain various modalities (visual, audio, and text) are complex and time consuming to model, process, and retrieve. Therefore, efficient methods are required for retrieval of such complex data. In this paper, we propose a multimodal query level fusion approach using a fuzzy cluster-based learning method to improve the retrieval performance of multimedia data. Experimental results on a real dataset demonstrate that employing fuzzy clustering achieves notable improvement in the concept-based query retrieval performance.


Integration of multimodal multimedia database system architecture with query level fusion
Sattari, Saeid; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2013)
Multimedia data particularly digital videos that contain various modalities (visual, audio, and text) are complex and time consuming to deal with. Therefore, managing large volume of multimedia data reveals the necessity for efficient methods of modeling, processing, storing and retrieving these data. In this study, we investigate some of the requirements to efficiently deal with multimedia data, especially video data. To satisfy such requirements we aim to integrate specific multimedia database architectur...
Summarizing video: Content, features, and HMM topologies
Yasaroglu, Y; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2003-01-01)
An algorithm is proposed for automatic summarization of multimedia content by segmenting digital video into semantic scenes using HMMs. Various multi-modal low-level features are extracted to determine state transitions in HMMs for summarization. Advantage of using different model topologies and observation sets in order to segment different content types is emphasized and verified by simulations. Performance of the proposed algorithm is also compared with a deterministic scene segmentation method. A better...
3D Object Modeling by Structured Light and Stereo Vision
Ozenc, Ugur; Tastan, Oguzhan; GÜLLÜ, MEHMET KEMAL (2015-05-19)
In this paper, we demonstrate a 3D object modeling system utilizing a setup which consists of two CMOS cameras and a DLP projector by making use of structured light and stereo vision. The calibration of the system is carried out using calibration pattern. The images are taken with stereo camera pair by projecting structured light onto the object and the correspondence problem is solved by both epipolar constraint of stereo vision and gray code constraint of structured light. The first experimental results s...
Optical flow based video frame segmentation and segment classification
Akpınar, Samet; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Department of Computer Engineering (2018)
Video information retrieval is a field of multimedia research enabling us to extract desired semantic information from video data. In content-based video information retrieval, visual content obtained from video scenes is utilized. For developing methods to cope with content-based video information retrieval in terms of temporal concepts such as action, event, etc., representation of temporal information becomes critical. In this thesis, action detection is tackled based on a temporal video representation m...
Content-based audio management and retrieval system for news broadcasts
Doğan, Ebru; Yazıcı, Adnan; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
The audio signals can provide rich semantic cues for analyzing multimedia content, so audio information has been recently used for content-based multimedia indexing and retrieval. Due to growing amount of audio data, demand for efficient retrieval techniques is increasing. In this thesis work, we propose a complete, scalable and extensible audio based content management and retrieval system for news broadcasts. The proposed system considers classification, segmentation, analysis and retrieval of an audio st...
